Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources


PhD from Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta

Research Areas
Broadly speaking, I am interested in understanding institutional change, with particular emphasis on the process of identity changes at the institutional level. My primary research domain is in the management of technological innovations, with conceptual underpinnings in institutional theory. My present research focus is on institutional changes in universities that impact on their identities and governance systems, university-industry linkages, technology commercialization, academic entrepreneurship and their contribution to the evolution of knowledge clusters.
